It is a good time to be a ramen lover. Super-popular Santa Clara ramen shop Orenchi, considered one of the Bay Area's best, is opening on Valencia next week. Eater reports that Orenchi Beyond will open on Tuesday, October 28 at Valencia and Duboce. And yes, there will be a wait, considering that the line for tonkotsu at the Santa Clara location can top two hours.

Because they don't take reservations, there's probably no way of avoiding a line. Get there early (but not on Tuesday; give them a few days to get their act together) and just expect to have some sidewalk time. Maybe make a greater Valencia scavenger hunt to entertain yourself? Weekdays seem like they would be a better bet than weekends, but then again, Tartine has a line every damn day.

Do you love ramen enough to take the day off of work to get some? You'll be tested next week.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
